Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. For the past 10 years, hundreds of millions of people around the world
have been inspired to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.  Join the global community movement and celebrate all acts of giving.

The Bank of Lake Mills worked with the counselors within the Lake Mills and Watertown school districts to fill the clothing needs of their students.
Over $1,500 in clothing items were donated: a dozen pairs of boots, seven pairs of tennis shoes, ten winter coats, and various sizes of gloves and hats went to
the elementary schools. The Watertown School District received $250 in gift cards to be distributed to needy families, and clothing and food items were bought for
the Lake Mills High School from their wish list.
